McQueen's little gold bolero

Initially, I thought this was an interesting black top with gold trim. But I soon realized that the "gold trim" was actually a fantastic Alexander McQueen short bolero, which can easily be worn with a top or even a dress, as shown. I've never seen a bolero quite like this before. While its size, shape and design are quite unique, I must say its versatility can add pretty embellishment to a plain outfit in a solid color. The details--scalloped edging, hand sewn heavy beading and sequins, intricate design--make this tiny piece of clothing a worthwhile investment. The gold goes with nearly anything and really jazzes up that black top, taking it from prim office wear to a trendy piece for a night on the town.
